VLADIVOSTOK, March 10 (Itar-Tass) – The Sunday Time programme of Russia’s First federal television channel told about activities of William Browder in Kalmykiya.
The story presented a version, where Head of the British Hermitage Capital investment fund is involved in criminal cases on tax evasion in that region of Russia.
The programme says Browder organised in Kalmykiya ten companies, which hired the disabled, who were only nominal employees receiving several hundred roubles a month for the use of their names.
This organisation allowed tax benefits, which reached billions of roubles. The story’s authors say first of all the organisation of businesses was required for buying shares of Russian companies, including those of Gazprom.
The television programme paid special attention to involvement of Hermitage Capital’s auditor Sergei Magnitsky in the fraudulent schemes for tax evasion and his connections with William Browder.
Several days earlier, the Investigative Department of Russia’s Interior Ministry told reporters about the investigation into a criminal case, where specialists analyse illegal purchase of Gazprom’s shares by several legal entities, where the majority were foreign citizens, including Browder. The investigation believes actions of the latter had caused the Russian Federation losses of three billion roubles.
